About Chinchilla Minimap

Chinchilla Minimap alters the Blizzard Minimap in a way to provide much nicer features and other niceties.

Allows changing of blip size, border style, shape of the map (doesn't have to be circular, or even square, lots of options are available), size, etc.
A more flexible north-east-south-west indicator.
Show your location coordinates.
Make the minimap very big temporarily (good for gathering or finding a tough-to-spot enemy).
Show the name of your location more flexibly.
Move Buttons
Move the buttons around the minimap to wherever you want (even off the minimap entirely).
Show which team-mate pinged the minimap.
Position the minimap and frames around it.
Range Circle
Show on the minimap where your range extends to.
Show / Hide
Show or hide various frames related to the minimap.
Tracking Dots
Change the dots on the map to a different set of images. Very handy, especially if you suffer from colour-blindness
Use the mouse-wheel to zoom the minimap and zoom out the map automatically after 20 seconds (or so).

Tagging as v2.7.4.


Ethan Centaurai:
    - Bump Interface number to 60200.
    - ShowHide: Fixed an oversight that broke the "unread invites" option. Closes ticket 187.
    - ShowHide: Revert back to the reparenting method to hide frames. Should fix problems with the durability indicator.
    - Ping: Fixed a rare error that occurred when a player's class cannot be found for whatever reason.

    I am having an issue with the show/hide on mouseover option. Regardless of what setting I choose, the buttons disappear unless I mouse over the minimap. This makes all minimap nodes for treasure chests disappear as well.

  • #1440

    Seems to be a conflict - again - with ElvUI ::sigh:: Tracking and World Map icons missing. Nothing in ElvUI (like Garrison button) to hide/display those items.

    Is that error from minimap with wow 6.2.2 or something else?

    I'm getting that as well.

  • #1438

    I hate to say it but I don't think this is a Chinchilla problem. I haven't experienced it yet.

    When does the error occur for you?

    EDIT: It's a bug with Broker Garrison but an update for that addon has been released. Make sure to update that addon and the problem should go away. :)

    If anyone has noticed an issue with their right-click menus (such as when you right-click on your portrait to leave party) constantly disappearing before you're able to actually click an option, it's due to a Blizzard bug. Just ensure that "LFG" under "Show / Hide" is checked (not hidden) and your menus will no longer disappear on you.

  • #1436

    cheers for that one!

  • #1433

    Tracking module seems to be broken for the most part.  I posted a ticket about it.

  • #1432

    "Chinchilla" and "Move Anything" are playing tug of war with the durability paperdoll icon again, I remember a while back you disabled it until you could figure out the code conflict, not a biggie but if you get around to it I would like to be able to move it as its undeath another frame now, and everytime I try to move it with either addon it snaps right back.

    Chinchilla Map i love you- Please update to 6.2 !

  • #1439

    Whoops. I'm a slacker. D:

  • #1430

    Anyone had a problem with the Garrison button disappearing with this addon? I've tried just about everything with the settings that I can figure and nothing works. Disabling the addon will bring the button back, but alas I really like this map :(

  • #1429

    I would LOVE "big"versions of the Charmed and Nandini tracking dots, is this possible?

  • #1427

    when the setting is set to make it side, top rounded it never holds the view setting.After logging out, the border holds but the interior of the map defaults back to round.  I have to select something different then go back to have the map fill out the frame again.

  • #1426

    the strata for the map doesnt seem to go low/high enough.  The tooltips for the buttons are all above except the one for the group finder which has the tooltip below the map always and becomes unreadable
